Sex, Gender, and Revolution: The Problem of Construction and the Construction of a Problem

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

A discussion of the ideological limitations of discourse—in which the "object" created makes sense only within that discourse, and the construction of which has epistemological consequences—provides a theoretical basis for examining the way North American feminists have variously redefined their feminist agendas. It also weighs the potential benefits of the insights of North American feminism to an analysis of sex discrimination, if it exists, in Cuba. Sample texts on and about postrevolutionary Cuba illustrate both the existence of an analytic problem and the range of difference in how the problem is construed.
